CBS Premiering Passel of Prime Programs


CBS will premiere 20 of its 22 prime time series the week of Sept. 18, with two reality series, the latest Survivor and Amazing Race getting early premieres on Sept. 14 and Sept. 17, respectively.

CBS is taking a traditional premiere week route, compared to, say, NBC, which is stunting with Deal or No Deal coming out of the gate, for Fox, which is launching some shows in August before its schedule gets shifted around the baseball playoffs.Following are the shows and premiere dates:
